I love Canadian skylines, londons canary wharf and many other cities skylines were copies of Toronto and new York, except London city cluster which is more futuristic looking towers, but I still prefer canary wharf, there's something about tall boxes close together that just looks great, were lucky in London that we have both, a body cluster and a sleek glassy cluster, and now more clusters are being built all over London, its only going to get better from now on, but we can't compete with the huge numbers of towers going up in Shenzen, new York and Toronto

You are not likely to catch Miami either with projects like these coming down the pike. Brickell CityCentre is only the beginning. As you can see, it is a massive project, and it keeps growing. It will include the not yet demolished block to the left on Brickell Avenue. So far, the project entails at least five buildings over 500 feet tall with one over 600 feet tall.

Update from the BCC Cam:

Thanks for letting people on this planet know your brief glorious-british-colonial-history.

Prior to that, I genuinely didn't know Hong Kong was built by british heavy labourers brick by brick.

Apparently your lately deceased PM, the Iron Lady, failed to arrest the declining living standards in the then "European Patient" "Great Britain" in the 1980s which led the jobless coal miners turned construction tradies from Yorkshire flocking to Hong Kong in search for better lives and salaries, in resulting building iconic skyscrapers such as the HSBC Headquarters, ohhhh, and maybe the Bank of China headquarters building too.

That's about as nice as you could make a highway look. The black lamp posts are sleek and compliment the cement roadway. Tree lined is always nice too.
